A merger has taken place between Xand and DBSi which will create a private data center firm in the Northeast market place.

Xand, the facilities-based provider, will add three raised-floor facilities in Pennsylvania, which will operate alongside their other premises in New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts.

Already serving over 1,000 customers with colocation, cloud, business continuity and managed services, Xand will now double its square footage to 400,000.

David Struwas, Xand's CEO, commented on the merger, explaining how DBS's facilities will benefit his company.

DBSi's impressive facilities, employees and customer base are a natural fit for the expansion of Xand's Northeast platform," he said.

"Both companies share a passionate, customer-centric culture and are leading innovators of data center managed services for the enterprise."

The newly formed company will offer opportunities for organizations of all sizes to deploy primary and secondary IT environments across three major metropolitan areas (New York, Boston and Philadelphia) and four states.

William Bachenberg, DBSi's current CEO, will take on an advisory role at the combined company and highlighted the benefits for both company’s customers.

"The combination of DBSi and Xand will enable our customers to capitalize upon enhanced cloud, business continuity and managed services offerings, as well as additional facilities and resources to better meet their growing IT infrastructure requirements," concluded Bachenberg.
